The first DLC pack for Splash Damage's Brink, "The Agents of Change", will be free upon its release early next month on the PlayStation Network, Xbox Live and Steam for two weeks, where if you grab it in that time it will remain free for you, miss it though, and you'll be made to fork out cash-money in what is an interesting way to attempt to balance the ire of FPS gamers who feel they shouldn't have to pay for new maps, item updates and more, versus a developers need to make more cash and extend the playable life of their game (though Brink really isn't that old to be worrying about that aspect just yet).
The DLC features two all-new environments, five new player abilities, two new outfits, and two new weapon attachments, while also raising the level cap to 24.
In tandem with the DLC, the teams at Splash Damage and Bethesda have been hard at work on the next major title update for Brink. The update is highlighted by online optimizations, AI enhancements, and weapon balance tweaks based on player feedback. A separate, incremental update is now available on PC, while players of the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 version of Brink can expect the full title update alongside the release of Agents of Change.

. There's no official word on pricing for the DLC after its two free weeks are up, but my guess is the standard AU$15-odd dollars for each platform. We'll give you more details when we have them.
